New Mercure wines
(by Peter Richards MW & Susie Barrie MW)
We’ve just launched our new autumn/winter collection wines with Mercure Hotels.
These are the three wines that sit at the heart of all the Mercure wine lists across the UK (some 70+, soon to be 80+ hotels we understand).
The brief was to choose three affordable but eclectic, surprising and delicious wines that suited the wintery season and its food.
The wines are as follows:
- The Cool Customer – Valençay 2014, Sébastien Vaillant, Loire (France), 13% (£6.75 per glass, £27.50 per bottle)
- Winter Warmer – U…Passimiento 2013, Baglio Gibellina, Sicily (Italy), 13% (£6.50 per glass, £26 per bottle)
- The Smoky Seducer – Mr P Knows Pinot Noir 2014, Iona Wines, Elgin (South Africa), 13% (£7.50 per glass, £29.50 per bottle)
We filmed some short videos to explain a bit more about the wines:
Finally, Mercure are running a competition via their Facebook page to win a bottle of all three wines. See this link. Competition closes 1st December.
